Vigilantes: Crime fighters or criminals?

Some call them vigilantes, but others may call them heroes. Regardless of their title, these crime fighters are running around committing acts of violence with the intent to stop criminals and protect innocent civilians from harm. While some see them as heroes, others think that they’re nothing more than criminals themselves for taking the law into their own hands. So who are these individuals and why do so many consider them to be dangerous public enemies?

In this video lesson we:

  • Talk about heroes and vigilantes.
